Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

It is great for kids and there should be an infinity out of 5 rating! Nickelodeon should be ashamed of themselves for taking away good shows like this!
